Mission Statement

The Professional Learning Committee is devoted to supporting the professional learning needed for Fullerton College educators—Faculty (full-time and adjunct), Classified Professionals and Managers–to improve student success. Staff Development support should contribute to this improvement not only in individual classrooms and student support areas, but across the campus as a whole. Staff Development believes this will best be achieved by encouraging shared learning and a culture of collaboration in order to become a truly learning-focused institution.

Top Initiatives

Teaching and Learning 2.0 Certificate– A 20 hour program designed to expand and strengthen staff skills as educators. Participants engage in professional learning across three categories of their choice, with a minimum of 5 hours in each category.

Adjunct Academy –  A two-day training series that includes 10 hours of interactive workshops is designed to provide our adjunct faculty with information about our students and campus resources, as well as introduce participants to strategies to enhance student engagement, motivation, and active learning.

Professional Activity or Travel Request Funding – Reimbursement for travel and attendance at conferences or other professional development activities. To be considered, staff must submit a plan to disseminate their new knowledge to students and/or staff on campus.

Flex Day Activities – Departments can propose professional learning plans to replace or supplement the regular scheduled breakout sessions during Fullerton College’s yearly Flex Days.

CORECourse Redesign for Equity (CORE), funded through California Community Colleges’ Culturally Responsive Pedagogy & Practices: Innovative Best Practices Grant,  is a 3-week long training that will be offered to faculty in Summer 2024, Winter 2025, and Summer 2025. The first course will take place this Summer 2024, July 16 – August 1, 2024 over Zoom (meetings 2x per week). Faculty will work on their own Canvas courses during the training and will receive a $2,000 stipend for attending all meetings and completing all deliverables.
